I'm replacing the exhaust system. I have some questions regarding the exhaust manifold installation.
Between the manifold (new) and head surface, should I use a new gasket or should I use something like Ultra Copper Maximum Temperature RTV Silicone Gasket Maker? I've heard some people say to use the gasket, and some say to use the RTV.
Also, what about:
Manifold bolts (new): threadlocker (red,blue)? OR antisieze? OR nothing?
What should I use to clean the threads that the bolts go into?
Manifold studs (new): threadlocker (red,blue)? OR antisieze? OR nothing?
